92. Insane trade policies and Reagan tax cuts on the wealthy reduced the revenue to the treasury creatin
creating bubbles which have been bursting since Reagan reducing the middle class to the working poor with supply side economics and virtual slave labor.
Demand creates jobs and having money to spend creates demand etc.. Capitalism is based on having capital and making money from capital so only the wealthy were thriving while the rest of us were reduced to being unable to support our previous lifestyles because wages kept going down. Now these same republicans are attacking the social safety net which WE created for just such a predicament. Only a change in the laws can get us out of this mess...make it just as expensive to make a product or supply a service offshore as it would be if it were made or provided here in America through tax cuts/incentives/penalties...close corporate tax cuts and roll back the Reagan tax cuts and watch by God...American middle class will return and prosper.

You blame the victims in your comment and this op-ed is just another example of an American waking up...He just doesn't believe a majority of people are seeing the same thing he sees but they do. Exposing these republicans daily as the enemy to our democracy they have proven themselves to be is, out of necessity getting the majority awake and involved. NO TAX CUTS EVER CREATED JOBS...JOBS ARE CREATED BY DEMAND NOT CHARITY.
